    Corn-gratz on the "win"! I used to have a Hilson "Fantasia" ~30+ yrs ago and she smoked well for me. Bet yours will serve you well.

    Very nice meer-lined pipe. That bowl doesn't look so bad...bit of reamer chatter is all. Sweet birds-eye on that bowl, stem looks clean and smooth. I like that pencil-shank look.

    Well found amigo...smoke her in good health!

    Well , I got the pipe a couple days ago ... I wanted it for a work pipe but that aint whats gonna happen . This pipe is so fine I'm honestly in shock over it a bit . I'll let it rest tomorrow and crank er back up on fri and see if I'm dreamin or what . It smokes as good as my Dunhill Innertube which I adore ... and as good as any Wiley I got . I'm honestly putting it up against my 100 year old gourd / meer that is truely the best smoking pipe I've smoked . As you can see in the picture .. there's very little wood around the meer ... I didnt know if it was gonna be a good thing or bad ya know . So far I've smoke MB GE , SWR , Edgeworth [ thanks Moo ! ] and Three Nuns [ thanks Snake ] in it and it's been flawless w/ each blend . Maybe I'm flashing back or something so I'll see how she does fri . Really really really nice .... Freaky . See , now I still want another work pipe .. lol .
